    As for line numbering - On the bottom of the window is the status bar. On the right side is the current line number that the caret is on.

    I know what he means Sean - he wants line numbers to appear beside what you type i.e.

    1 Hi
    2 Hello
    3 Goodbye

    Ok. Sorry, I did not understand exactly what you meant.

    Hopefully this is the final version. I have set it to version 1.00. I have also updated all the other attachments on this thread to the current version. If there are any erros let me know so I can fix them. I wanted to finish this up and release it quickly because I am ready to work on something else.

    Thank you for all your comments and suggestions. Many I have included in this release.

    I have been thinking about making an add-on program that will keep all your code (HTML, C/C++, etc...) in a database. From there you can sort, add, delete, and manipulate your entries and then copy and insert your code into Small Edit. This way I would not have hard code the HTML scripts into Small Edit. You could add all the entries you want. It would also come with some pre-set code samples as well. Tell me what you think about this idea.

    Thanks again for all your effort and I hope you enjoy Small Edit. All other versions of Small Edit released will be on the Black Frog Studios web page which is in my signature.

    Sean, if you ever do decide to make more changes, one of the things I'd like to see is the title of the document in the title bar (instead of "Small Edit"). This would be a helpful feature in distinguishing between multiple instances of the program.

    It's nice, but too low tech (no MDI, spell check, syntax highlighting - I'm spoilt by TextPad the ultimate text editor). But having said that, it is a very neat little application

    I personally like the "low-tech"ness of it. If I wanted something loaded with features I'll just use MSWord or equivalent, but this is neat in it's simplicity, once again, a great job!
    This is my signature. Remind me to change it.

    Ah I see my preaching @ FD regarding Textpad is paying off!!!

    Its an awsome program.....I have added loads to my version by way of custom commands, templates, syntax highlights and I have even just added a build script for assember that assembles all my modules, compiles my resources (if I have one) links it, and then either runs it, or puts it into my debugger.......couldnt be easier to use now!

    Ugh....

    www.textpad.com/


    The version you download is 100% usable, but it reminds you its an evaluation copy every few saves..........Its worth buying though

    www.downloads.com - search for "Text Pad" and you'll find it. It's not a large download either, which is a bonus.

    But I think SmallPad may find a home on my desktop soon enough
